Greenings, peoples of Earth. We bring you obligatory salty nations. Hail and sleet wet. Now that we have gotten the preliminary round of tenstacle waving out of the way we can progress to a topic of more gravitas.
We've been out in your Kuiper Belt, wandering through the Oort cloud and disturbing the occasional icy rock. We are pretty sure we left a probe out here although we can't seem to find it at the moment. It was not a large probe but it did help us better communicate with the home world. We're sure it is around here somewhere. Hopefully we'll bump into it before you actually do something worth reporting back. While you are a busy species you are not particularly a productive species. Oh sure you make many things but most of it is recyclable and should be. It did not appear to always be this way but you lately seem to have become fixated with navel gazing and so are repetitively creating your past over and over again in different ways. It must be providing great amusement for you; otherwise you would not be doing it. For us, it is just one more thing to have to figure out. Like your shiny discs which used to contain much in the way of entertainment and now, well, perhaps it would be just easier to show you.
